. boehner wants obama to come to him, have the mountain move towards hoe mohammed, and the president is not ready to do that at all. and this plan-b to get obama to move has not quite worked. now boehner has to round up votes to try to pass it, and that's why we're in the mess we're in today. >> eliot: it seems to me last weekend they crossed their major ideological divide when they said they're raising rates on the wealthy the rates being the sand that they were not willing to cross. and the cpi the real entitlement cut it seems that it will be coming to reaching the middle ground and then things stalled out again. what do you think has happened to thank this. >> boehner has had a hard time bringing about his conference. this is a stunt and delay tactic, and it may be plan-b for boehner, it may be because he's having trouble bringing along the members of the conference, particularly the quote tee party members who we heard congressman israel taking a swipe at there. it's a real struggle for boehner. he has this sort of outward game where he's negotiating with obama where he's trying

from violence as protests are escalating right now between those who support mohammed morsi and those who opposed him. fierce street battles today killed five people and left more than 600 injured. outside the presidential palace. that is the worst outbreak of violence since morsi's election. the protests began two weeks ago when morsi took almost absolute power by exempting himself from judicial oversights and his spoofers quickly passed a draft constitution. at a white house briefing yesterday, press secretary jay carney refused to take sides or to say whether president obama supports the islamist leader but he did say the united states continues to have an important relationship with egypt. >>> turning to a disaster here at home, the white house says it will send in an emergency request to capitol hill this week asking for up to $60 billion to help recover from hurricane sandy. if approved, much of the money will go toward rebuilding homes and communities but top administrators say they want at least some of the f
